When you ask Taylor Swift how she feels about the relationship between her best friend Selena Gomez and her worst friend Justin Bieber, she betrays any number of mature, coherent emotions. Except the opposite. I’m sure you saw that GIF of Taylor walking by Jelena and sticking her tongue out in disgust at them making out. It was one of those ‘ew, blech, KISSING’ moments that you immediately want to follow up with a cooty-shot, y’know? Because you’re super mature and feeling twenty-two. What’s weird is that I actually really loved that clip of her being grossed out — I think it’s hilarious — I just also think it’s funny that Taylor still goes to the effort to pretend that she’s being mature and taking the high road by not discussing it.
Girl, you may not be going on a public tirade about how much you don’t like Justin, but you’re also smart enough to know that the way you’re handling it is bringing the same amount of attention to the situation as ranting about it would. When she was asked a question about Justin after the 2013 Billboard Awards this past weekend, her response was, “Can we have another question?” And then when she was asked in a different interview what she and Selena were whispering about when Justin won, Taylor answered:
“Oh, you do not want to know! You do not want to open that can of worms. Especially tonight.”
Taylor! C’mon! You’re trolling the media, I can see you from here. (I’m also totally falling for it, but whatever.) You’re like, “Oh boy oh boy oh boy let’s not open this can of worms, but here’s a key to the worm can that I’m gonna leave right on the counter DON’T TOUCH IT TONIGHT OF ALL NIGHTS but if you do, worms really love soil, just saying, but don’t do it! My new song isn’t about Justin, so quit asking! Oh you didn’t? Well then don’t! WORMKEEPER OUT.”
